One of the most portentous comments ever made by a candidate concerning his own campaign prospects was Romney’s off-the-record remark about Obama having an automatic 47% floor of support. The media attack dogs lambasted him for his “out of touch” sentiments. The reality is that Romney hit the nail on the head months before the pollsters would coalesce around that number. Let’s confront an inconvenient | Read More »
Dispatch from the Ohio Front
Just over a week ago, I along with fifty other Tennesseans boarded a charter bus and began a five hour trek to the front lines of the 2012 fight for the Presidency. We arrived in southwestern Ohio at roughly 10 PM EST that Friday night. Upon our arrival to our hotel, we received our room assignments and initial instructions. Then we bedded down for the | Read More »

Mitt Romney as Alexander the Great!
Sadly, this summer Andy Griffith died. Growing up in the 1970’s, watching the Andy Griffith show was simply part of our day. Between episodes of Howdy Doody, The Brady Bunch and Gilligan’s Island, the Andy Griffith Show was just another show where life lessons played out on TV. Together these shows were “Americana” incarnate, where stories about honesty, hard work and community were on display | Read More »
Comparing the instincts of Mitt Romney to those of Barack Obama.
This is what Romney-Ryan thinks is important enough to mention in the last two weeks of the campaign. It is the latest email that I have received from the campaign. Stay safe, give to the Red Cross, and GET THOSE ROMNEY-RYAN SIGNS INSIDE! High winds will turn them into deathtraps! This is what Obama for America thinks is important enough to mention in the last | Read More »
Did Barack Obama Intentionally Mislead KUSA’s Kyle Clark About ‘Abound Solar’?
President Obama gave an interview to Kyle Clark of Colorado NBC affiliate KUSA. In the interview, which saw the President answer and try to dodge some of the toughest question he’s been asked the whole campaign season, the President claimed the White House has no involvement with stimulus funds going to a company called Abound Solar. The company, as you can guess, is another loser | Read More »
Tech at Night: Ajit Pai comes to RedState on IP Transformation, FCC Reform Needed, Copyright Reform Needed Too?
Regulation must keep up with the needs of modernization. That’s a point new FCC Commissioner Ajit Pai came to RedState to make, particularly with respect to the Internet transformation going on in telecommunications. As the world “goes IP,” and puts everything on the Internet, regulators must adapt. Make sure to read it. Ajit Pai would have a particularly important role as a reformist regulator should Mitt Romney win.
Regulation today just doesn’t make much sense sometimes, a point Broadband for America makes. The point about ‘edge’ vs ‘core’ of the Internet is important. The firm that sits between you and Google is as important to you as Google. They’re all pieces of the puzzle.

COLIN POWELL ENDORSEMENT, NATIONAL SECURITY or “Endorsing White House Failure and Cover Ups?”
LEADERS, REPUTATIONS and ENDORSEMENT! Leaders act. Pretenders talk. Heroes run to the fire and cowards walk. Republican, Four Star General, former Secretary of State, and former National Security Adviser Colin Powell is a proven leader. He endorsed the sitting President on October 25, 2012; this the second time in four years. As a private citizen this great man has rolled the dice on transparent Presidential failure and | Read More »

No, Conservatives Don’t ‘Hate’ Stephanie Cutter
Here we go again. Those mean conservatives ganging up of a poor, helpless liberal from the Obama campaign, which happens to be the president’s deputy campaign manager. We don’t “hate” Stephanie Cutter, which Amanda Marcotte suggested in her October 23 post on Slate’s feminist “Double X” blog. Ok, let me walk that back – most conservatives don’t “hate” Stephanie Cutter. You’ll always find those hyper-partisans, on either | Read More »
Even Slate’s Feminist Blog Finds The ‘Binders’ Meme Stupid
Even Slate Magazine’s feminist blog, Double X, which was co-founded by Hanna Rosin, who recently authored The End of Men, thinks the “binders full of women” meme is stupid. Amanda Hess wrote on October 17 that she “agree[s] that Romney’s positions on health care, contraception, and the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act will do nothing to help women…binders stocked with intelligence on top-shelf female candidates, though? | Read More »
A Wide Electoral/Popular Vote Split Won’t Happen
There is an emerging narrative percolating throughout the political world; the prospect that Romney could win the popular vote but lose the Electoral College. The theory is predicated on the seemingly contradictory data between state and national polls. National polls seem to show Romney with a consistent 2-4% lead, while state polls show the candidates tied or Obama slightly ahead in Ohio, Iowa, and Wisconsin. | Read More »
Swingometer: Gallup Party ID figures predict solid Romney win
We always talk about the independent, swing vote in elections because those tend to be the persuadables. But party ID numbers matter as well, because those partisan voters tend to split better than 90/10 for their party.
It is for that reason that Gallup’s new partisan ID split, one that mimics what Rasmussen has been saying all along, predicts nothing less than doom for the Democrats, and a solid, national win for Mitt Romney this year.

Cheap Tricks and One Night Stands
If you needed further proof about just how much the President has cheapened the Presidency, consider his latest ad, which not only compares voting for him for the first time to losing virginity, but also ridicules those who might not want to lose their virginity to just any politician. This is the peer group peer pressure people across the political aisle have complained about in | Read More »
Does the Obama Campaign have to report this Rolling Stone interview as a donation-in-kind?
I realize that more eyeballs are seeing this post than have seen the last dozen issues of the hyper-political Rolling Stone. For the 99.999999% of America that doesn’t touch the magazine with a thirty-nine-and-a-half-foot pole, here’s a list of the questions that Douglas Brinkley asked President Obama for the latest issue.
Then again, you know what? Forget “donation in kind.” Rolling Stone should be booked on prostitution charges after this printed romp in the sack.

Tech at Night: Cybersecurity and the imperial presidency
We’re still in wait and see mode on what the Obama administration will try with respect to cybersecurity, but of course they’ll use every news event as justification. Here’s the problem though: Attacks like the Iranian attack on Saudi Arabia prove that businesses must use best practices, but government regulation will only hinder industry from keeping up with the latest. Regulation is too slow. Government is too restrictive, and not accountable enough.

Live Action Advocate Exposes Planned Parenthood’s Botched Abortions and Cover-Ups
Lila Rose, of the Live Action Advocate, has released a video exposing Planned Parenthood’s negligence in the death of Tonya Reaves, who bled to death in a botched abortion at one of their clinics. Additionally, the video contains recorded phone conversations with Planned Parenthood employees lying to would-be visitors about the health risks involved with an abortion procedure at clinics that have had medical emergencies | Read More »
